Topic: Bronstein Apartments
In February, Nashua Mayor Donnalee Lozeau said she envisioned tearing down the Bronstein Apartments, one of the Nashua Housing Authoritys low-income housing units.
The Nashua Housing Authority, which own the 48 units on Myrtle, Concord and Pine Streets, are moving forward with a proposal to tear down the complex. Many of the families living there are willing to say goodbye to Bronstein to get away from the crime and find a safer place to raise their children.
The Telegraph examines the housing authoritys plan to demolish Bronstein and the idea of creating mixed income housing in the city. The six-day multimedia series will include a live public forum on Thursday at 7 p.m.
